“Copa America will be my last dance with Argentina,” says Angel Di Maria

Argentine legendary footballer Angel Di Maria will be playing his last international match during the 2024 Copa America. The player has played an important role in the history of Argentina, but his journey ends soon. Scoring goals in the finals of the 2021 Copa America, 2022 Finalissima, and 2022 World Cup and winning all of them. But for him, none of them comes ahead of his friendship with Lionel Messi.

Both Messi and Di Maria have been playing together for Argentina for over a decade. They have witnessed every heartbreak and rise in Argentina’s football history. Di Maria is forever grateful that he played with Messi. While he announced his retirement plans, Messi already knew it.

Angel Di Maria said,

“I hugged Messi at PSG and told him: the only thing I’m grateful for is to have been able to play with you in a club, to be able to see you here every day!”

Before saying that, he also mentioned, “It will be over for me, but I’m so happy as I had the chance to enjoy my friendship with Lionel Messi.

Really, their bond is one of the strongest, and after Di Maria leaves the field for Argentina in 2024, his presence will surely be felt on the field.
